Current Paintings





The art of John Hughes has its roots in the painting methods of the American Impressionists as well as numerous painters from the European traditions. His love of nature started early in the rural environs of New York State where he grew up and painted along the Croton River.  Summer trips into the Adirondacks on family vacations helped to infuse John with a love for alpine vistas. John has also cultivated an appreciation for the painters of the Ashcan School and  makes trips into downtown settings to do studies of the hustle and bustle of city life. John is a member of the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters, American Impressionist Society and the Plein air Painters of Utah. He has writtten regular columns on Outdoor painting for 15Bytes, Fibonacci Fine Arts Digest, and Plein Air Magazine’s weekly newsletter – Outdoor Painter. His galleries include Mountain Trails Gallery in Jackson Hole Wyoming and Montgomery Lee Fine Art, in Park City Utah. If you would like to schedule a workshop or make a purchase, John can be contacted at:
